ABOUT THIS WINE

The Anselmi family owns 400 Ha of land, of which 90 are planted to vineyards. The remaining land is used to farm grains, apples and vegetables. The southern boundary of the farm is defined by the Stella River, which flows to the Adriatic and is part of a Natural Park. The farm is split into two parts: the largest part is in the Friuli sub-zone of Latisana, and the other is in the Collio DOC. Latisana is located southwest of Collio Orientale del Friuli and Collio is on the Slovenian boarder in the foothills. The farming is sustainable, with no use of pesticides or fungicides. Cover crops and mowing are used to maintain vineyard health. Soils are a fine mix of limestone and clay (marl). Dry farmed.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Since 2004 we've represented the wines of Giuseppe and Luigi Anselmi, and could not be more pleased. This is one of the great, quality wineries in Northeast Italy. Ettore Anselmi first planted vines in 1937 after he bought his first hectare outside the town of Pocenia in the heart of sunny Friuli. The gravel and sandy soils are a great home for the indigenous variety Pinot Grigio. Today, brothers Giuseppe and Luigi Anselmi continue the family estate. They both studied enology at schools in Trentino, and have traveled to the Veneto and Tuscany to visit other quality wineries and learn new techniques. The local success of their wines has grown the estate to 80 hectares of vineyards. Each wine is produced with moderate yields, temperature controlled fermentation and no oak. On every visit to the estate, Luigi and I discuss the quality improvements he has implemented and where he plans to take the estate over the next 10 years. I am amazed at the attention to detail and the drive to continually improve at this estate and it shows in the wines. To produce wines at this high level of quality combined with tremendous value is amazing. The Pinot Grigio, Friulano, and Prosecco production all come from estate vineyards that are farmed with great care; in the cellars no detail is over looked. The wines are clean, expressive, delicious, and full of life. We are very excited to see what the future holds for this estate.
